[slackware-security]  sysstat (SSA:2022-313-01)

New sysstat packages are available for Slackware 14.2, 15.0, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/sysstat-12.7.1-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  On 32 bit systems, in versions 9.1.16 and newer but prior to 12.7.1,
  allocate_structures contains a size_t overflow in sa_common.c. The
  allocate_structures function insufficiently checks bounds before arithmetic
  multiplication, allowing for an overflow in the size allocated for the
  buffer representing system activities.
  This issue may lead to Remote Code Execution (RCE).
  For more information, see:
    https://www.cve.org/CVERecord?id=CVE-2022-39377
  (* Security fix *)
